Mad Hot Ballroom

When you learn dancing, you don't just learn how to dance. You learn how to treat a lady well and for a lady to learn how to be treated by a man.

"Mad Hot Ballroom" is a documentary that follows a few group of public school students (in their teens) that learn 5 dances (Tango, Rumba, Foxtrot, Merengue, Waltz) within 10 weeks.

There was a interview with a teacher in the movie where she broke down because she saw her kids growing up into ladies and gentleman. Very touching.

Dance teaches kids to learn to grow up. It teaches you to walk and grow.

I definitely would want my kids to learn to dance, to teach them not just a skill but to become mature.
